WOYWW #499: Advent Journal (Part 3)

I'm a bit late joining WOYWW today as I slept in - after all it's Boxing Day! I walked up the field behind our house with coffee in hand first thing this morning - it was one of those perfect moments when everything is right with the world! (There's a page in my advent journal inspired by those perfect moments, coming up further down.)

I couldn't quite finish my advent journal by Christmas Day - but I'm not far off. It's fine - it's not a race against time - I'll finish it when I get there. The photo of my desk was taken yesterday - have you spotted my Christmas present? It's a Sidekick! I figured I use so many tiny dies, it would be good to have a die-cutting machine sitting on my desk so I don't have to keep getting up. Plus, it's good to have a back-up if something happens to my Big Shot.

Here's a close-up of the background I was working on, after I distressed it with some gesso. I'm thinking of making a journal full of these weathered backgrounds as I enjoy them so much!

I managed to complete 5 spreads in my advent journal last week (December 15-December 19) - 5 more to go! My pages are loosely based on Kasia's Advent Calendar prompts - sometimes I had to bend them a little to fit my style of journalling. The main thing is that this project got me back into creating, for which I'm very thankful!

Your chosen colours

Christmas in your home

Priceless presents

Being grateful
I got this tiny deck of cards in my Christmas Cracker yesterday - it will be perfect for my projects!

Hope everyone's having a wonderful Christmas. Here are a few snapshots of ours.

Happy Boxing Day!
